2. The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel
Do you want to take in the beauty of the Smokies from high above the skies? When you ride on The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, your family will be lifted more than 200 feet in the air where you can take in the glorious scenery of the mountains. While this ride is spectacular during all times of year, it is especially popular during the fall because you can experience a bird’s eye view of the magnificent fall foliage. One of the best parts of the ferris wheel is that each glass gondola is temperature controlled and can hold up to 8 guests, so the whole family can all ride together!

The Escape Game at The Island in Pigeon Forge provides a great opportunity of family bonding. To begin, your group can choose one of five themes for your mission.

Once inside your first room, your family will be given 60 minutes to find different clues and solve the puzzles necessary to complete your mission. This is a great activity to do with family because everyone will have to work together with the clock ticking if you want to successfully escape!
